The Tobago Cays – A Perfect Day of Sailing in the Caribbean | Caribbean Island Travel | Scoop.it

We’re not sailors, yachties or cruisers, we’re just travellers who want to make our way from one point to the next. If you look out from any waterfront restaurant or hotel in the Grenadines, you’ll see numerous sailboats, catamarans and yachts anchored out there, bobbing slowly from side to side.


People whiz into shore from their liveaboard ships on small, motorized dinghies to replenish their boat with necessary provisions – which consist mainly of beer and rum!

View of various islands and a part of town at Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas Last week the US Virgin Island Department of Tourism took me along for the fun, whirlwind press trip to visit two of its three islands — St. Thomas and St. John — with seven other digital storytellers.

 

For both of these islands, you can’t help but be enchanted by the breathtaking views of the coastlines, the crystal sapphire blue skies, and the swirling or puffy white clouds. The things I’ve come to realize, from a native New Yorker’s perspective, is that everyone runs on island..

St Lucia: The sweet life

St Lucia: The sweet life | Caribbean Island Travel | Scoop.it
"We call these jungle M&Ms," offered my guide Cuthbert. "Try one." They looked more like fat white grubs clustered inside the cacao pod; the botanic term mucilage didn't make them sound any more appealing.

 

But my love of chocolate meant that very little would deter me from trying it fresh from the plant. Sweet and fruity, the soft white outer layer melted away until just the cacao bean was left, although this one wouldn't be starting the fermentation, drying and roasting process along with the rest of the crop from the plantation in St Lucia's lush Soufrière hills.
